 Title: Heat and Matter Reflection (09/27/10) Description: Your thoughts on the heat and matter chapter.

 Article posted September 27, 2010 at 03:29 PM GMT0 • comment (15) • Reads 862 One thing that I liked the best in this unit was the popcorn lab. I liked that a lot because I got to get popcorn. Another thing that I liked was when we were in the lab and were playing review games. The thing that I liked the least was when we had the test because it was kind of hard even though I studied a lot. Three things that I learned was what conduction, convection, and radiation. Conduction is when energy is traveling from one to another by direct contact. Convection is the transfer from on place to another by gases and liquids moving. Radiation is the moving of particles without the use of matter. I really like this unit. Did you like it? Article posted September 27, 2010 at 03:29 PM GMT0 • comment (15) • Reads 862

I liked the one when we had the balloon on top of a water bottle and there was a bucket of hot water and a bucket of cold water. Then we had to put the water bottle with the balloon on top of it into one of the buckets. In the hot water, the balloon blew up a little bit (It expanded). Then, we quickly switched the bottle from the hot water to the cold water and the balloon got smaller (It contracted).  I loved that lab. It was my favorite one so far. I also learned about expansion, contraction, conduction, convection, and radiation. What i didn't like so far this year is the tests. I don't like tests. I love labs !!! How about you?! Article posted September 27, 2010 at 03:42 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 699

I also learned that in a convection current cold air sinks and warm air rises. Another thing I learned is that that there are three types of heat transfer,conduction, radiation,and convection. What I liked best about this unit was the popcorn lab. What I liked least about this unit was having study guides and lesson worksheets. My question is why doesn't  water expand and contrast like everything else? Article posted September 27, 2010 at 03:29 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 724

All matter expands and contracts because when the particles gain thermal energy they start to expand. When the particles lose energy the matter contracts. Water contracts differently because it freezes at a certain temperature. While it is losing energy water expands because it forms into rings. Bridges have joint because the pavement needs room to expand and contract. the experiment i liked the most was when we learned about radiation, conduction, and convection using three different ways to make popcorn. My least favorite part of this unit was the test.  I disliked this because Mr. Phillips was absent so we had to write the test instead of doing it on the computer. If you were a particle what item would you be in?

For example: without heat we would be freezing! One thing that I liked about this chapter is that Mr. Phillips made it fun. One thing that I disliked about this chapter is that we did so many worksheets. A few things that I learned in this chapter are that a convection current carries air in a circular motion. I also learned that workers have to leave space between tracks when they build railroads. When the tracks heat up they expand. If the workers didn't leave any space between the tracks, the tracks would buckle over each other. My favorite thing that we did in this chapter was the popcorn activity=http://!!!!!       We have learned a lot in this chapter, but there are still a few things undiscovered. What do you think they are? Article posted September 27, 2010 at 03:29 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 711

I also learned that most of our heat comes from the sun. Lastly I learned that conduction takes place throughout direct contact between two objects. What I liked most is the labs. My favorite one was the lab were we had to put our hand in cold water then into warm water. Then into hot water then back to warm water. My least favorite thing I learned in science class was convection, conduction, and radiation. I still dint really know what convection and radiation are but I have a good idea. OK, now for a question did you like this science lesson Article posted September 27, 2010 at 03:29 PM GMT0 • comment (1) • Reads 736

Another thing that I learned in this unit is that an insulator is a substance that slows down the transfer of heat and a conductor is a substance that allows heat to pass through it easily. The last thing is that construction workers use insulators to build houses or other buildings so that heat passes through it slowly. The best thing that I liked about this unit is when we did the popcorn lab because we got to eat it after! The thing that was my least favorite was taking the test!   One thing I didn't understand was how insulators work? Do you know?

I also learned that most  metals are good conductors.  Ever wonder how aminals keep warm in really cold weather?  Well, the air inside the fur is almost like an insulator for the air and keeps the air warm.  I liked the popcorn activity in this lesson.It was very awesome and tasty!  I didn't like all of the work, but I love activities that Mr.Phillips does.I think it's a good way to teach us and to have fun at the same time.Do you think the most energy we get is from  the sun?

Another thing that I learned is that the cold makes objects contract. I have also never heard of people putting gaps in between railroads and roads.The thing I liked best in the unit was doing so many group projects together with my table. The thing I disliked were all the power points I found that boring. A question I have about the unit is why does it get hotter when you get closer to the ground then when you are on a mountain or a place high up? What did you like? What didn't you? Can you answer my question?                                                                                                                                                                                               ~zebra (Zebra is what I will call myself!)

### Hello I am 106 P. During this Unit on heat and matter I learned about energy, types of energy, and expansion and contraction. What I liked best about this was an experiment we did with hot, cold, and  room temperature water. What I liked least about this was taking the test. I wasn't at school when we did a food coloring in water experiment and I would like to know what happened then more fully.

Also I learned that if you take out air if you are on a long drive there would be less chance of blowing out a tire because there is less particles.  Another thing I learned is there is gaps in between railroads to help with expansion and contraction. What I liked best is when we did the experiment with the food coloring because it was fun to see what the food coloring would do that is my favorite thing we did. What i disliked about this unit is i really didn't find it interesting about the unit. My question is can you tell me an example of conduction?

Another thing I learned is what a concentrated solution is. A concentrated solution is a solution with a small amount of solute compared to the amount of solvent . The last thing I learned is what a exothermic reaction is . A exothermic reaction is a chemical reaction in which more energy is given off than it is takin in. An example is wood burning. Those are some things I learned in this unit. My most favorite thing was the chemistry in a bag lab because it was fun to see the bag blow up and to see how hot it got. My least favorite thing is some of the worksheets we did because I didnt find some of them interesting. One question I have is about a concentrated solution.

This lesson I learned that convection can travel using only using gasses and liquids. I also learned that the sun uses radiation to produce heat. I also thought the currents were interesting. My favorite lab was definitely the popcorn lab. My least favorite part was probably the test; I thought it would be really hard because it was the first test. As you can see, I liked this lesson alot but, I still want some examples of radiation. Do you have any examples for me? Article posted September 28, 2010 at 06:57 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 928

I also learned that microwaves use radiation by using a magnetic field . Lastly I learned that conduction occurs when two objects touch each other.  I think the best part was the submarine lab. I think my least favorite part was the popcorn lab because I didn't think it tasted as good as at the movies.            I really get mixed up with conduction and convection.  How about you?  please leave a comment.                                                                                                                                                              58 M out Article posted September 27, 2010 at 06:58 PM GMT0 • comment (5) • Reads 880

### Hi, I'm 59 M. I would like to tell you some things I have learned in science so far this year. So, three things that I've learned in science this year is that convection currents heat a room. I also learned that  the particles in a cooler substance move slower than particles in a warmer substance. Something else that I've learned is that cooking an egg in a pan on a stove is conduction. Alright, next I will tell you what i liked best about this unit. So, I think the thing I liked best was using the CPS remotes. The thing I didn't like was the lab worksheets.Blah! Now I have a question for you. Can you tell me some examples of conduction??? If you can please answer! Thanks for reading! :)

Three things we learned about is conduction, convection, and radiation! Conduction is energy transfered by direct contact. Convection is energy transfered by the motion of molecules in a substance. Radiation is energy transfered by electromagnetic radiation. My favorite thing was when we did the experiment where we put our hand in a pan full of water, then put it in the middle pan! The warm water felt good! I didn't like the popcorn lab, though, because I'm really not a big fan of popcorn! But, that's just me!

I also learned that when two things come in contact it is called conduction and I learned that heat rises when it is hot and it goes to the ground when it cools. My favorite science lab was the one when we had to see if the green food coloring moved or stayed the same. I mostly liked every thing in this lesson because it was fun to learn and try different things. One thing I didn't understand to well was how radiation worked or what it did.

One example of conduction is pancakes on a griddle. The second thing I learned was radiation. Radiation is the transfer of heat from one object to another without the use of matter. We get most of our radiant energy from the Sun here on Earth. The last thing I want to talk about is heat, the transfer of energy from warmer matter to cooler matter. Heat is transfered by conduction, convection, and radiation. What I liked most in this unit was the popcorn lab where we cooked popcorn 3 ways and identified if they were conduction, radiation, or convection. We got to taste-test afterward! What I liked the least was doing tests and study guides.  In this unit we also learned about insulators and conductors of heat. The only conductor mentioned was metal. Why is water a conductor of electricity and not heat? Article posted September 27, 2010 at 07:01 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 695

I going to tell you what I learned from Unit B Chapter 1 in science.There are so many things I learned about in this chapter. One of the these things is that there are three ways heat can be transfered by conduction, convection, and radiation. Another thing I learned was that particles don't move at the same speed as the other particles in the same object. The last thing I will list is a room gets heated by convection. The thing in this chapter that I liked the most was the popcorn lab. My least favorite part of the chapter though is convection. I didn't think convection was very exciting. I understand pretty much anything. So, I want to know how many different ways heat can be transfered through conduction, convection, and radiation. Do you think you could help me make a list of ways?

Then we learned about  expansion and contraction. Like when a bridge has those jaws that is so that the bridge can expand. We also learned about convection. Convection is when a furnace heats up a room. also called a convection current. We also learned about radiation, radiation is when you heat something up in the microwave.Lastly we learned about conduction! conduction is when you heat something up on a stove. My favorite thing this year was when we  did  the popcorn experiment. I did not like well i liked everything!!!! What is conduction??

First the warm air comes out of the furnace,then it rises to the top of the room. Then it starts to cool so it loses energy,and sinks to the ground and then into the air vent and repeat. Also I learned that matter expands when heated and contracts when it gets cold. Another thing I learned was that the metal things on the bridges were for expansion and contraction. The thing I liked best was that we did a lot of labs. I really liked everything, there was nothing I hated. What I want to know are examples of convection and radiation.

I learned that particles in matter gain energy and move faster when matter is warmed. I also learned that energy in particles can make matter expand and contract. Another thing I learned is that radiation is the travel of energy without the use of matter. I really enjoyed all the labs we did this chapter. I learned a lot  from the labs which made me happy. i did not like the lesson on convection,radiation, and conduction. It was very difficult for me to understand. i still have a little trouble with it, but now i understand most of it.

##### Three things that i learned in the unit are conduction,convection,and about particles.Conduction is the flow of heat from one object to another by direct contact between the objects.Convection is the flow of thermal energy that occurs when a warm liguid or gas moves from one place to another.All particles don't move the same speed,when the particles in a substance are cold they move slow.When particles are warm they move about medium speed,and when they are hot they move fast.When faster moving particles bump into slower moving particles,the faster particles give the slower ones energy.

My favorite things in this unit were probaly doing the labs we did,for example the one where we made the popcorn.Another one of my favorite labs were when we did the balloon experiment.Some things that i like the least about this unit was we did the food coloring experiment when convection occured when the food coloring was in the water.

### In this unit we learned about heat and matter.We learned about radiation,conduction,insulation,temperature,convection,and heat.Now lets take a little quiz to see how much you know.These are true and false questions.True or false the flow of energy from warmer to cooler matter is heat.We also learned Fahrenheit and Celsius,it is very easy and so is the other stuff.Now lets see what you know about Fahrenheit and Celsius.Particles nearly stop moving at -273 degrees what.Last I'm going to give a bonus question,and lets see if you know(its tricky)! At 5:00 p.m. the temperature in a northern city was 7 degrees.By 10:00 p.m. the temperature had fallen to -7 degrees.How many degrees had the temperature fallen in 5 hours.It is Celsius.NO CHEATING=http://!

##### This is what i learned in this chapter. I learned about  how air particles move by depending on the temperature. I also learned how different types of energy travel through different objects. These objects are conductors and insulators. Another thing  i learned was expansion and contractsion, it was favorite thing to learn about this year. It was my favorite because we did a lab with a balloon, when we put it in hot water the balloon went up, and when I put it on the cold water it went down. That is what i learned this chapter.
